What are Enzymes?


Enzymes are strings of proteins that catalyze bio-chemical reactions. This simply means they “jump start” bio-chemical reactions that are vital for human life. Enzymes are present in all living cells.

Enzymes are very specific in what chemical reactions they catalyze. Enzymes are used by cutting-edge biochemists in the war against disease. Enzymes are completely safe – even beneficial – to all living things. In fact, your body produces many enzymes that protect you from germs and viruses.

Enzymes work differently from chemicals because they don’t get “used up”. They are recyclable. You can think of enzymes as billions of very small, very hard-working factories operating 24 hours a day.

The Natural Hot Tub Company uses 14 different enzymes in its Bio-Prepase™ (Water Treatment & Conditioner) formula. We tested thousands of different formulas over a period of years to find just the right mixture of enzymes that were effective.

With this formula, we have a set of “master” enzymes that have been effective but at the same time keep the formula 100% safe for people, plants, animals and our environment.

The Natural Hot Tub Company Bio-Prepase™, (Water Treatment & Conditioner), enzymes have some fascinating properties. Most enzymes work within a narrow temperature range – between 70 and 90 degrees F. At the lower temperatures, the enzymes don’t have enough energy to start a reaction. As the temperature rises, they work better until they start to break down from the heat. The Natural Hot Tub Company’s Bio-Prepase™ enzymes are different because they continue to work all the way up to 180 degrees F! Very few enzymes can tolerate – much less thrive – at this temperature. The Natural Hot Tub Company’s Bio-Prepase™, (Water Treatment & Conditioner) enzymes also have a long shelf life – up to 5 years. Most enzymes are lucky if they last a week.

There are over 3 million different types of enzymes and still counting!


It took several years of research to develop the right combination of enzymes to be effective for treating hot tub water. Its just like calling someone, if you don't dial the exact numbers, you don't get the right person!
